This is an example of a fun activity that can be done with the children. It was part of a topic lesson from professional practice 1b where the children were learning about ‘the deadly 60’.
All the children really enjoyed this activity as although they had to do some writing, they were able to use the iPads to research the information to put in the centre of the Venus fly trap. They then wrote the information in the middle before colouring it in the colour of the Venus fly trap they learnt about in the prior session. They then cut out around the edge to make the spikes and folded it in half so they could trap things in it.
Some of the children who finished the activity quickly used their knowledge of what Venus fly traps catch and added things to their such as flies.
Target: Use fun activities that the children can enjoy and apply their prior knowledge to.
